With more and more electric cars on the road, we can assume that they will also be involved in auto accidents. Since firefighters are usually first responders, they need to get additional training on the differences between standard, hybrid and electric cars. Tesla Motors has stepped up to the plate to donate their Model S for firefighters to use in practice emergency situations.

There is a pretty good training video for firefighters, using the Tesla Model S to demonstrate how to use the jaws-of-life hydraulic rescue tool to assist in getting people out of the car after an emergency crash. Understanding the various electrical components of an EV (electric vehicle) is critical, because a firefighter needs to be aware of potential dangers that are in the EVs as compared to a regular automobile. Operational considerations include the high voltage components as well as overall construction differences.

The forty minute video isn’t a complete demonstration, but it is used along with more detailed instruction that is given by a qualified electric vehicle instructor. Tesla has made their name as one of the top EV manufacturers in the world and has maintained quality and integrity while keeping up with the technology needs of a growing EV market. By donating their Model S version, they are not only doing a good deed, but getting public relations and excellent exposure to markets that they might not previously had the ability to preview. The Tesla brand has continued to be elevated and associated with excellence on a global scale, and it’s anticipated that they will be the benchmark example for other automotive manufacturers. Giving firefighters the ability to save the lives of others while understanding the complexities of an EV is yet another great move on the part of Tesla Motors.

    My Uncle bought a Tesla and he absolutely loves it. He told me that the dealer has treated him better than any other dealer of any other car he has ever bought. The car itself has been a dream for him. When I rode in it with him, it took me a while to get used to no noise, but the interior was so nice, it actually made the ride so much more enjoyable. There should be more car manufacturers that do things like this, it pays off in the long run. Will be sharing this info with my Uncle.

    Tesla isn’t a name that has made it that big in the U.S., but in other parts of the world it is really well known. They struggled for a long time trying to get their EV on the market, but that’s because they were visionary thinkers and a bit ahead of the times. It was worth sticking it out, because now they are top dog in the EV market. This is a great way for them to give back. It will pay off in the future, because you know those firefighters, their families and everyone that is associated with the rescue video will remember that it was Tesla that helped them.
